Torch and Twang

Torch & Twang is Impact’s best and brightest outlet for the folk, Americana and bluegrass tunes you love. Every Tuesday, hosts Alex and Daniel bring you a current stream of new music, hot modern acts like Noah Gundersen, and of course your favorites from America’s thick roots history (cue the Cash and Hank Williams).

Torch & Twang also promotes Michigan’s long standing tradition of incredible bluegrass and folk music by supporting all of your favorite local Americana groups.

On a given show you’ll hear special in-studio interviews and performances that give insight into the minds of the people behind the music. Be sure to stay tuned throughout the night for insight into the modern Americana news beat, word on concerts happening nearby, ticket and album giveaways, and plenty more!

Whether you are a long time fan, or a newcomer to Americana music, Torch & Twang is a must have during your Tuesday night!
